As expected, the murmurs of a Crash Team Racing remaster is real! Officially coined as Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, the game will be an HD remaster and then some! Expect online multiplayer matches and more. In the press release sent out, Activision has announced the Crash Team Racing remaster release date set for June 21, 2019, for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC!
In development by Beenox, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is being built from the ground up, and remasters the original game. Old school players will remember Crash, Coco, Dr. Neo Cortext and more as part of the roster, and thankfully, they’re all coming along for the ride!
Game modes include:
- Single Race
- Cup Race
- Time Trials
- Battle Mode
In terms of multiplayer, there’s online and offline multiplayer right out of the gate!
Pre-orders are now live for the game, and there’s also a Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled – Ntros Oxide Edition, which is a fancier way of saying the digital deluxe edition. In the digital deluxe, Nitros Oxide will be a playable character from day one in all game modes. Players will also receive the full Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled game, Oxide’s Hovercraft kart, space-themed character skins for Crash, Coco, Cortex, and much more. Those who don’t pre-order can obtain the Ntros Oxide character and his hovercraft kart by completing some of the challenges in Adventure mode.
Are you excited? I know I am! I’ve lost countless hours playing CTR way back then, and I’m definitely excited to do it all over again.
